I grew up in Japan where taking off your shoes before entering a house is a habitual practice. Japanese houses are designed to have a designated entryway just inside the door that we call genkan. The genkan acts as a boundary between the inside and the outside. At the genkan, we take off our shoes, store them in the built-in shoe cabinet or leave them there if you are a guest, and put on indoor slippers to proceed into the house.
July 17th, World Emoji Day, is approaching! Rarely a day goes by that we do not see emojis. They are everywhere. They are not limited in text messages and social media anymore. We see them in press releases, merchandise such as emoji on t-shirts and phone cases, and even in tattoos. But did you know that the original meanings of some of the emoji were lost in translation?
